I am not good at macros, so please can someone assist me. I need to have this symbol in my macro


So the comma is like a 9 not a 6 but the macro my colleague wrote for me does not work on my pc but it works on hers — this is it here:

Selection.Find.Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
    With Selection.Find
        .Text = "'n "
        .Replacement.Text = "’n "
        .Forward = True
        .Wrap = wdFindContinue
        .Format = False
        .MatchCase = False
        .MatchWholeWord = False
        .MatchWildcards = False
        .MatchSoundsLike = False
        .MatchAllWordForms = False
    End With

In which way is this related to (La)TeX? – Qrrbrbirlbel Oct 2 '12 at 5:27
Welcome to TeX.SE. However, as per @ Qrrbrbirlbel, I don't think that you question is (La)TeX related. Just using 'n should give you that symbol, but not sure if that is what you are looking for? – Peter Grill Oct 2 '12 at 5:29
You might be interested in \textquoteright n or just plain ol' 'n. – Werner Oct 2 '12 at 5:29
Googling for Select.Find.Execute I found this page, so clearly this is off-topic. – egreg Oct 2 '12 at 7:28

Here are three different symbols packaged as a macro that you might be looking for:

enter image description here

The last is one is from Werner's comment.



\newcommand*{\Nc}{\textquoteright n}

\Na  \quad\verb|'n| 

\Nb  \quad\verb|`n| 

\Nc  \quad\verb|\textquoteright n|

\Na would be the right one. ʼn is actually a Unicode character. Libertine, for example, has the glyph under the name napostrophe (and uni0149). – Qrrbrbirlbel Oct 2 '12 at 5:55
@Qrrbrbirlbel It is in Unicode, but its use is deprecated, see here – egreg Oct 2 '12 at 6:58
